Will Obama's new fuel economy standards raise the price of a car by $11,000? How will this help sell cars?
The Obama Administration’s new fuel economy standards will cause the retail price of average motor vehicles to increase over $11,000, according to a study conducted by the Center for Automotive Research. “A fuel economy standard of 37.6 mpg is associated with a price increase of $5,244, 18.1 percent higher than the 2009 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) average price of $28,966. A fuel economy standard of 40.8 mpg is associated with a price increase of $6,770, 23.4 percent higher than the 2009 NADA price,” says their report called, “The U.S. Automotive Market and Industry in 2025.”

Obama just can't think of a single thing to help create jobs. Meanwhile his EPA is killing jobs like crazy with a mountain of new regulations. They even declared Carbon Dioxide, the gas you exhale with every breath as a pollutant.

That's actually the point. The Democrats are trying to push everyone into trains and buses by making cars prohibitively expensive and so small no one even wants to be in them.

It won't help sell anything. The only thing he is good at is killing jobs, his regulations in combination with his out of control spending is his formula for destroying Capitalism.
